He who has gone for refuge to the Buddha, the Teaching and his Order, penetrates with transcendental wisdom the Four Noble Truths — suffering, the cause of suffering, the cessation of suffering, and the Noble Eightfold Path leading to the cessation of suffering.
Yo ca buddhañca dhammañca saṅghañca saraṇaṃ gato
cattāri ariyasaccāni sammappaññāya passati.
Dukkhaṃ dukkhasamuppādaṃ dukkhassa ca atikkamaṃ
Ariyañcaṭṭhaṅgikaṃ maggaṃ dukkhūpasamagāminaṃ.
– Dhammapada Verses 190 & 191
